GMC Site Approval

GMC site approval should be applied for if a training location is used for more than two sessions, or one day a week. There are some locations (such as a patient’s home) that are important to the training experience, but not appropriate to apply the GMC standards to. 

If a location is not approved, the achievement of curricula outcomes may not count towards the award of a certificate of completion of training (CCT). This may result in a doctor’s completion of training date being delayed. 

A list of approved programmes or training sites, by local office or deanery, is updated fortnightly.

To request new site approval, please complete the Training Location Approval Request form and send it to

If you are concerned that you are working in an unapproved site, please contact the Wessex Quality team via immediately.
